Its merits, demerits, indications & contraindications will be discussed in another blog. In this blog will see how they are planned in three simple steps to give you maximum benefits.

Before jumping the world of panchakarma therapies one should how it is been scheduled. This will help to understand the nature of procedure and its benefits.

For an e.g. while preparing a meal or any dish we do pre-cooking, cooking & post-cooking cleaning, the same thing happens with panchakarma therapies, it’s a three-step program designed for every one of the panchakarmas. They are termed as Purva-karma, Pradhana-karma & Paschat-karma.


  • 1) Purva-karma: (Pre-Panchakarma measures or procedures):

Before doing the main procedure one has to under go the pre operative measures.  It’s a simple two types of procedure executed before panchakarma as a preoperative measure. It has two 1) Snehana, and 2) Swedana; both this procedure is carried out for 3 to 7 days as per one Prakriti, Agni, Bala, health condition, age, etc.

A) Snehana: It is oleation therapy done by using oiling agents like ghee & oil. Based on application or introduction it’s been categorized into internal application (Abhyantar Snehana) & external application (Baahya Snehana).

  • Baahya Snehana: It is a procedure of applying oil externally to the body with gentle pressure in such a manner to get absorbed in the body. It is a type of body massage with herbal ayurvedically prepared oils.
  • Abhyantar Snehana: The introduction of oil or ghee in such an amount, that it gets digested easily with increasing dose of it every day up to getting specific results is known as abhyantar snehana. In simple terms, it is the drinking of ghee.

B) Swedana: Making the body sweet by using various types of hot fomentation is known as swedana. It is done by steaming the body with steam of ayurvedic decoction.

What is the necessity of Snehana & Swedana??

Both the procedures (Both types of Snehana & Swedana) are very helpful in loosening up the toxins from the system. This helps them to bring the toxins into the elementary canal or system from where they can be drained out of the body from the nearest exit easily.

Both types of Snehana & Swedana are prescribed before Vamana, Virechana & Raktamokshana. While before Basti & Nasya required only external Snehana & Swedana are done.

2) Pradhana karma:

This is a day therapy program to expel the toxins from the body through the nearest exits they need. These are;

  • Vamana– toxins from the stomach are expelled through the mouth with the help of emesis.
  • Virechana– toxins from below the stomach are expelled out through the anal opening with purgative medicine
  • Basti– toxins present in the colon are expelled by introducing the enema through the anal opening & then it carries all toxins out with it.
  • Nasya– toxins present at the head and organs attached to it are expelled out from the nostrils.
  •  Raktamokshana– toxins present in the blood are expelled with the help of jalauka (leech) or syringes from the skin & veins.

 

3) Paschat karma or Uttar Karma (Post-operative measures):

After completing any of the main karma from panchakarma postoperative measures are a must. These are simple diet rules designed according to the condition of the body to recover faster without any discomfort.  The diet regulation starts from having just boiled rice water, and then shifts to gruel, after that khichadi then after that to regular roti sabji. This also continues up to 3 to 5 days.

What is the necessity of the Paschat karma??

The paschat karma is adopted to regulate the homeostasis of the body after doing panchakarma. During the first two panchakarma procedures, Agni has to go through various changes that lead to weakening Agni or Agni-Mandya. This diet management helps to restore its ability to normal in a very short time.  This also prevents from getting unnecessary complications after the panchakarma.

Doing the panchakarma in the right way helps to flush out toxins from the body, helps to balance doshas & dhaatus equilibrium, boosts immunity, and builds better health.

At Ayurvidhi Clinic we provide the best panchakarma in an authentic ayurvedic way.

Revitalize Your Knee Health with Janu Basti: A Panchakarma Perspective

In the realm of traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Janu Basti Panchakarma stands out as a unique and effective treatment for knee-related ailments. Derived from the ancient Sanskrit words “Janu” (knee) and “Basti” (to hold or contain), this therapeutic procedure focuses on rejuvenating and healing the knee joint. As a part of the broader Panchakarma system, Janu Basti offers a holistic approach to knee care by addressing the root causes of pain, discomfort, and inflammation.

Understanding Janu Basti:

Before diving into the specifics of Janu Basti, it’s crucial to grasp the concept of Panchakarma. Panchakarma is an essential component of Ayurveda, aimed at detoxifying and rejuvenating the body. It involves a series of treatments and therapies designed to remove toxins, balance the doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), and restore overall health.

Janu Basti is a therapeutic procedure within the Panchakarma system, tailored to alleviate knee-related issues.

 

The Procedure

Janu Basti uses warm herbal oils and a dough dam to create a reservoir around the knee joint. The process begins with the patient lying on their back, followed by the application of a herbal oil on the knee area. A dough dam made from black gram paste is then placed around the knee, creating a sealed space. Warm, medicated oil is poured into this reservoir and allowed to remain for a specific duration.

Indication:

Janu Basti is seen as beneficial in the following knee conditions:

  • Knee pain while movement
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee
  • ACL tear
  • PCL tear
  • Previous old history of knee operative with current knee pain condition,
  • Cartilage tear
  • Meniscus tear
  • Tendonitis

 

Benefits of Janu Basti

  • Pain Relief: Janu Basti is particularly effective in relieving knee pain caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis, or other inflammatory conditions. The warmth of the oil and its therapeutic properties soothe the joint, reduce inflammation, and ease discomfort.
  • Improves Mobility: By nourishing the knee joint and supporting natural lubrication, Janu Basti enhances joint mobility and flexibility. This, in turn, helps in restoring a broader range of motion.
  • Long-Term Healing: Unlike temporary pain relief solutions, Janu Basti addresses the root causes of knee issues by oiling the knee ligament, tissue attached to the knee joint, etc. Regular treatments can lead to long-term healing, making it an ideal choice for chronic conditions like a meniscus tear, ACL tear, osteoarthritis of the knee, etc.
  • Preventive Care: Janu basti serves as a preventive measure in old age, for patients having degenerative changes in knee joints due to its rejuvenating properties.
  • Curative Care: Janu Basti can also serve as a curative measure to cure knee pain in degeneration of knee joints, especially for individuals at risk in old age & for professional players with knee injuries like athletes, tennis players, those who have undergone knee surgeries and now facing knee problem again, also in ACL tear, PCL tear, meniscus tear, and tendonitis, etc.

Janu Basti Panchakarma is a testament to the holistic approach of Ayurveda towards healthcare. By addressing the underlying causes of knee problems and promoting overall well-being, this ancient therapy offers a natural and effective solution for those seeking relief from knee pain and discomfort.

At  Ayurvidhi Clinic Ayurvedic & Panchakarma Treatment Centre many patients have found a good relief in knee problems with our Janu Basti program. We always choose the right oil for Janu Basti according to the patient’s complaints, which suits them giving the best result in knee pain and problems.

Each season has its qualities, and these qualities can impact our dosha (bio-energies) – Vaata, Pitta, and Kapha. The rainy season is characterized by increased humidity and moisture, which can aggravate Vaata dosha in the body. Vaata imbalances can lead to various health issues like digestive problems, joint pain, and anxiety. To counter these imbalances, Ayurveda recommends specific therapies and practices, and one of them is Basti Panchakarma.

Basti Panchakarma involves the administration of medicated herbal enemas to cleanse the colon and remove accumulated toxins from the body. It is a deeply therapeutic process that helps balance Vaata dosha and promotes overall well-being. The procedure typically lasts for a few days and is performed by trained Ayurvedic practitioners.

Types of Basti Procedure:

  1. Niruha Basti: The Basti constitution made of medicine decoction along with some oil and honey emulsification is called niruha basti or kadha basti in layman’s terms.
  2. Anuvasana Basti: Basti constituted only by medicated oil is Anuvasana basti or tail basti.
  3. Matra Basti: Oil Basti introduced in a specific quantity is known as matra basti.

Duration of Basti:

The duration of Basti treatment is determined accordingly to the person’s health condition the necessity of the panchakarma procedure and the chronicity of the disease. Generally, it is been advised in the terms 8 days, 15 days, 21 days, or 30 days duration. It’s a physician’s call to choose the duration according to the patient’s health.

Benefits of Basti Panchakarma in the Rainy Season

  1. Detoxification: The rainy season can lead to an accumulation of toxins in the body due to increased humidity and weakened digestive fire. Basti Panchakarma helps eliminate these toxins and purify the system, reducing the risk of various diseases.
  2. Improved Digestion: The increased Vaata during the rainy season can lead to digestive issues like bloating, gas, and irregular bowel movements. Basti helps pacify Vaata and improves digestion, promoting a healthy gut.
